's go to president obama right now. president obama: i just received a full briefing from our emergency response team at as well as fema and other agencies helpful in response and recovery efforts in the department of energy, department of transportation, the department of homeland security and the department of health and human services. obviously everybody is aware this point that this will be a big and powerful storm. all across eastern seaboard everybody is taking the appropriate preparations. i've spoken to all the governors in all these states, they have issued emergency declarations. they have been turned around quickly in the white house. we have pre-positioned assets so fema personnel are working closely with state and local governments making sure the food and water and emergency generation is available for those communities that will be hardest hit. we anticipate that the center of the storm will hit landfall sometime this evening, but because of the nature of this storm, we are certain that this is going to be a slow-moving process through a wide swath of the country. billio
genuinely believe this is a guy who wants to do right by his people. barack obama, you're seeing a human being there. and the camera doesn't lie. obviously, will this weigh an election -- obviously, it leans clearly for obama, but what i love about this is what you see with these guys is the same what you see with the guys in the streets of hoboken that were affected. i believe people are overwhelmingly are tremendously decent including politicians, and you're seeing that. >> is it too cynical to read all this in? let's be clear. analysis is happening within the washington political bubble. but i think if you're watching on television, you're seeing chris christie doing what he has to do for his state and the president doing what a president does, arriving in a disaster zone offering consolation but also his federal help. >> yeah. that's all true. but it does have a political impact. it's not unreasonable to say what are the politics in terms of the impact after this? but one of the most corrosive things about washington in the last 8, 12 years has been the permanent campaign. and we in
position it's a rally if romney wins and a slight gain if obama wins. >> exactly right. corporate america leaner, meaner, healthier than ever before. making $105 a share. even if it were to come off a little bit, the multiple is an indictment on the lack of pro-growth policies. you'll get maybe 15 multiple if you get an obama election. romney, look for a 20 multiple. >> okay. john, i gather you're not worried about the effects of hurricane sandy. you're saying between the fourth quarter and first quarter, we will get back whatever we lost and then maybe some. >> yeah, i think so p. >> we're talking 2%, 2.5%. destroying bridges doesn't create jobs. >> i think we'd all agree when i look into the tone of the discussion, we're talking about moderate growth. 1.5% to 2% growth. we're really not talking about back to 3% to 4% growth. and i would say we really need to resolve these uncertainties about affordable care health care, we need to -- dodd-frank, the bush tax cuts. a lot of policy uncertainty whether that needs to be resolved before we move the economy forward.uncertaintywheto be resolve
sandy is doing right now. sandy forced the presidential candidates to make big changes. president obama made his changes on the fly. canceling a campaign event in florida around returning to the white house. mitt romney held a rally in iowa and canceled events tonight and tomorrow. "special report" from washington up and down the atlantic coast starts at 6:00. now back to a wet new york and "the five." >> eric: this is a fox news weather alert. hurricane sandy, the latest. get team tropical storm rick leventhal and steve harrigan, but first to janice dean. >> we should see landfall from the system in minutes. over the next 20 minutes to 30 minutes as it continues its northwestern progression. 28 miles per hour. so this storm has sped up. the result are the same. we'll still see the incredible storm surge, record storm surge along the long island sound, delaware bay. you can see as we zoom in, i will show you where the centersy. 's just right offshore. perhaps making landfall around cape may southern new jersey coastline. but again, we are dealing with the incredible effects already. win
voted for barack obama last time and get them to come out and vote for us this time. >> all right. so maybe mitt romney is also taking a two prong way, he's for early voting, too, or maybe he has a bit of romnesia about what his closing strategy is supposed to be. whatever the case, the two strategies that they've chosen tells us this. president obama has eight days to win this election. mitt romney has nine. because he's betting on a big turn out on election day. listen, romney may be on to something given that in 2008, there were states that then candidate obama lost on election day. but he carried them because of his campaigns early voting strategy. right now polls show that in key states like ohio, president obama leads mitt romney 2:1 or 60% to 30% with early voters. remains to be seen what strategy will seal the deal and who will win this election. but come election day, it will be clear whether the right strategy was galvanize voters early, early, early, or just hope they show up on election day. let's go to our table of experts. we -- look, this is it. 2450es are the final day
family. so i would like to see president obama go right back to health care. and to strengthen what we've got so far. and you will always have intensified effort to create jobs in america. that's -- no matter who wins the election that will have to be the focus, but i think for president obama, i think health care again, and i think immigration. >> i don't have children, have you children. i have nieces and nephews, i want them to be able to go to college and have a great life. so our definition of the american dream, greatly varied, some people want to live on the upper east side. other people just want a nice house in the suburbs with a great school that they can send their kids to that's a public school, but i don't have to shell out 20 grand a year for kindergarten. so the american dream has many definitions, but i think whomever is elected, certainly has to build a confidence in our country again that it is attainable, not for a select few. >> i have strong views, i think the biggest problem in the history is race, we have whatever we have now, which isn't so great. we have to sol
on the fronts? jackie deangelis has some of the stats with us. >> that's right, joe. president obama met with new jersey governor chris christie yesterday. the president touring some of the worst hard hit areas of the jersey shore saying 2,000 fema personnel are on the gloupd rou affected states. at least 74 people have died in the u.s. as a result of sandy. most of them from new york and new jersey. still 5.6 million customers in the dark. and it may be ten days before the hardest hit areas sea power restored. more than 19,000 flights were canceled because of sandy, but stranded passengers have something to be thankful for. newark and jfk airports were back in business yesterday and delta and american airlines are scheduled to resume a limited number of flights out of laguardia in about 30 minutes. the mta is also getting back to business with new york city subways offering limited service starting today. the m tcta is waiving all fees until tomorrow. so good news there. >> we're looking for any good news so thank you. the eye of hurricane sandy has hit the jersey shore hard. it wiped a
. right now president obama lays out a new vision for what or who his campaign is fighting for. we'll play the latest remarks from the president on the campaign trail. >>> plus, governor romney picks up the tagline he was using before hurricane sandy. the tagline that he is the candidate of change this time around. with five days left, we'll look at why the states the candidates are visiting over the next few days could tell us more than any poll you could read today. >>> and former new mexico governor and obama supporter bill richardson will join me live. we'll talk with him about his thoughts on where the obama campaign stands. >>> plus, rush limbaugh and a few other conservatives are now slamming governor christie, accusing him of aiding the president's electoral chances. does the rapt against christie from some republicans surprise you? it's our "news nation gut check." invest in what i know. invest in what i know. i turned 65 last week. i'm getting married. planning a life. there are risks, sure. but, there's no reward without it. i want to be prepared for the long haul. i see a world
. that's why the money is coming in. that's why obama is really playing hard defense right now. >> larry, two things to watch in pennsylvania. in the west, you have the coal country. they're very irritated about the obama administration's regulations. and in the east, you have the philadelphia suburb philadelphia suburbs. romney is strong with republican voters. if suburban voters flip, romney has a real shot in the keystone state. >> if republicans are always worried about wasteful spending, this is a perfect example of wasteful spending. they don't spend any money in minnesota at all. >> one at a time. >> it's not that long ago. >> 1972 is the last time minnesota voted for a republican. >> i hate to say it, but it was richard nixon. now i've said it. robert costa, i want you to challenge my friend keith boykins. you're saying there's a horse race in michigan, and wisconsin. the numbers in wisconsin look even up. and in iowa, where the liberal des moines register just endorsed romney. so there could be some real midwestern upsets, huh? >> the point in wisconsin is true. keith boykins is
, ohio, right now. our brand new cnn/orc poll shows president obama with a narrow lead in that state 50% to mitt romney's 47%. that's within the sampling error making it still effectively a dead heat. our chief national correspondent john king is joining us right now. he's in ohio as well. john, take us inside these numbers. >> wolf, they are fascinating when you look deep in this poll. the president you just showed he's here in ohio. governor romney will be here tontd. they expect some 35,000 republicans at his rally. in this part of the state i'm in cincinnati tonight. when you look deep in our poll you see this one will be fought out through the last poll closing on election night. look at these two candidates among independents. governor romney with a slight edge 48% to 46%. again, that's a statistical tie well within the margin of error. the auto bailout is one of the things the president thinks will help him here in ohio. you heard him mention that in this speech. look at this in the industrial northern part of the state, across northern ohio where you have many auto-related direc
. courtney reagan has latest. >> that's right, bill. president obama says the government will do all it can to get resources to local government and that he will provide additional resources to help restore power. the wrath of sandy has killed at least 39 people, a number we unfortunately expect to grow. more than 8.5 million people are without power across 18 states. earlier today, president obama declared disaster in new york and new jersey. the president will travel to new jersey tomorrow where he'll join governor chris christie in viewing the storm damage. much of new york and new jersey remains paralyzed with power outages, flooded roads, and debris. governor cuomo said this is the worst storm he's ever seen in new york city. public transportation remains shut down as many subway stations are flooded. mta officials say the damage is the worst they've ever seen in the subway's 108 year history. airports are beginning to open up. jfk will open tomorrow. washington and philadelphia have been partially restored as far as service is concerned today. bill, back to you. >> courtney, thank you
, right? his background is being in the arabian horses networking on something. but president obama's fema director has a very long track record in disaster management and disaster preparedness and has been very much tested during the past four years, has responded very well over and over again. but the other thing that we haven't talked much about is how many private/public partnerships the president has put in place and the willingness to work across partisan lines, which we saw with chris christie and the president. i think in many ways it's been a model of how the federal government is dealing with the disaster. >> now we're getting these stories out of staten island, also in lower manhattan have been affected by this. but there is a perception, certainly from those people that don't feel like they're getting the help that they need quickly enough. >> oh, of course. and look, your point about it being working class, it was stunning to hear governor romney there talking about drilling and the pipeline and coal and fuel. particularly in the wake of a disaster. because one of the things w

right, let's write it down. new york times, gave hard for the obama team put him up 5 points in ohio and karl rove looked specifically at that poll. overpolling, oversampling of democrats skewing the overall result. that's a fact, not an opinion. >> stuart. i've been hearing about the skewed polls for ages and here is the bottom line, every pollster worth their salt and that's most pollster, are not going to skew numbers, nobody will believe them when the numbers don't prove to be accurate. when you look at the polls the way the people's lives depend on it you're not going to-- your credibility is on the line. stuart: the is new york poll, oversampling. >> and even rasmussen said democratic turnout is going to be higher than republican turnout. >> what the polls said. >> gave it a plus 2. and stuart is asking a fact-based questioning. have you looked at the sampling methodology. >> i have. >> and did you see it could be skewed toward more democrats. >> let me tell thank you, there are certain polls that screw more democrat and some screw republican because the automated and call peop

he even opposes a clean energy tax credit for wind. obama, i think, is just misreading the polls entirely. the latest polling shows that -- i think ken is right. when global warming becomes local that the public becomes concerned about it. that's why the polls in the last two years have shown the public is increasingly concerned and this is particularly true of independent voters also. they are very concerned about their local pollution but also the extreme weather that they've been seeing. who could miss $14 billion extreme weather disasters in this country last year and over $7 this year. everyone sees the weather is going crazy and it's affecting them. it's not going to be affecting distant people in a distant land a distant time from now. it's happening here and now. >> suarez: joseph romm, kenneth green, gentlemen, thank you both. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> suarez: we've rounded up all of our reporting on these issues on our "coping with climate change" page on our web site. take a look. >> ifill: and we turn to the final days of the presidential contest. among the key s

of the images have been extraordinary. as you saw at the top, president obama and governor christie toured the devastation area. more on that from jessica yellin right now. >> crisis makes unexpected political bedfellows. >> i cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern for his compassion and concern for the people of our state. >> president obama returned the favor. >> he has put his heart and soul in to making sure the people of new jersey bounce back even stronger than before. >> reporter: obama and christie on the presidential helicopter to review the storm ravaged coast, touring a shelter for residents who lost everything. >> fema here right now. >> and walking in a neighborhood among the hardest hit. among the surprises, a president not known for displaying affection showed it this day. >> we will get you together. i promise you. promise. you are going to be okay. >> and governor christie, one of mitt romney's top campaign attack dogs. >> give you a plane ticket back to chicago you have earned. >> reporter: went out of his way to talk about his leadership credentials.
president obama and opponent jim mccain say? we need to raise taxes. that's the right reaction because that would mean fewer jobs. and i want to be real clear. the 200,000 men and women in virge whose jobs are at risk who serve in our armed forces should never be used as a political bargaining chip to race taxes on small business owners. [applause] >> the best way to raise revenues is with a fliving economy where businesses are prossspering and people are getting pay checks not youring about extension of unemployment benefits. so folks there is a lot at stake five days from now. november 6 it is our generation's ran day view with dest any. i believe that the people of virginia here in the richmond area, the central virginia area, especially since we're here at doswell farms where the greatest history resource in all was born. we want to be like secretary i can't and you all are going to lead the way for a triple crown victory where we re-elect our leader eric cantor for a representative. [applause] where with our win in the u.s. senate we change the leadership in the united states sena
cash to get right now? this is why it's so important. the obama administration said the following, obama for america -- let's go to the bank of america statement first. bank of america, we don't discuss client details but this loan has been disclosed as required by federal election commission rules and it is a standard commercial loan at a market competitive rate. that's what they say. i cannot prove that, carl, that it is market competitive rates. obama for america issued the following statement in regards to this loan. the loan was reported in mid-october in our fec chris closure and was covered by the press. it is a line of credit established by the campaign to ensure cash flow flexibility. we have not drawn on it. now, in addition to the obama campaign, mitt romney borrowed some money. he didn't go to the bank of america. went to the bank of georgetown, and he took out a loan of $20 million, the rate even more attractive, 0.045%. that was a loan taken out august 22nd, payable in 2013. there are some differences here because, again, bank of america, a public bank showned by the
advantage. 66% disapprove of barack obama. to the degrethere are persuadable voters in the tight election contests and the small number 7 states. it is right now, looking like those are going to break toward governor romney. >> we will see, the issue is clearly favorable for obottom a. the auto buyout has hurt romney significant. the issue environment in virginia, i live in northern virginia, gifavorrable to obam a. i think you will see a very interesting election night. i think we will be looking at a few of these states. we may be up very late. but obama is doing well in the states he had to win to get over 270 electoral votes. i think romney is hurt by some of the outrageous things that the senate candidates in missouri and indiana have said about a woman's right thochoose. romney hasn't been able to pull away from those candidates. i think there is issues that are working very much in obama's favor. we will see how this thing turns out. >> congressman, he holds a different position than those candidates -- >> his ads are still up in indiana. >> what's more important -- [overlapping di
dead-even right now which we've seen in a number of polls. both the romney-ryan ticket and obama-biden ticket, tied 46-46. this is a squeaker, folks. that number really has not changed much over the last 30 days. when we break that down among independent voters which is a lot of focus is on, you have governor romney ahead of this key voting bloc by 7%. as you can see president obama made gains with independents since october as well. his number has gone from 32 to 39. let's bring in some of our favorite experts, doug schoen, former pollster to president bill clinton. monica crowley, radio talk show host and both are fox news contributors. five days to go, this thing is so tight. if people aren't talking about sandy they're talking about who they think will win this thing. quick initial thought from you both and then i want to cruise through some of these polls. doug, where do we stand? >> oh, i think we are suggest that we're in a tie. the swing state data showing ever so slight obama lead, within the margin of error. ohio couple points up. through the midwest, wisconsin, michiga
president next tuesday. >> i would add, right before we came on, i got a memo from jim messina the obama campaign manager essentially pushing back on the idea that pennsylvania is now a swing state. so to mark's point, the president himself might not be engaged and rightly so but his campaign is still active. this is not 16 days it's six days. >> the romney campaign put out a memo about pennsylvania. >> absolutely. >> let me ask mark akbout pennsylvania. i was there last week. the republicans saying we can do this, we can win pennsylvania, democrats saying it's not even in play. what is your assessment? >> well the obama campaign needs pennsylvania to win. the romney campaign doesn't. i don't think they would be wasting the money in pennsylvania on the republican side if they thought they had no chance or at least a chance to distract the democrats. if the romney campaign went on the air in new york, i don't think the obama campaign would feel compelled to match the dollars there. if the obama campaign went on the air in texas tv i don't think the romney campaign would feel the need to g
right now. we'll bring it to you as soon as it begins. >>> also, waiting for president obama to speak in ohio. the race there extremely tight. cnn's latest poll of polls showing the president leading mitt romney by just three points. romney arrives later in ohio today. the president also expected to take the stage in just a minute. this is springfield, ohio. that is where we will bring that to you live as soon as it starts. >>> welcome back to "cnn newsroom." i'm suzanne malveaux. a rally for president obama in springfield, ohio. we'll bring that to you life as soon as it happens. the president really making his case, his final argument for why he believes you should vote for him. we are also waiting for the new york mayor michael bloomberg to address his city's recovery efforts, what is taking place there as well. i want to first go to the job numbers, however. the final unemployment report before the presidential election, well, it's out today. here's what the numbers show. the economy added 171,000 jobs last month. joining me to talk about the numbers, georgia tech economist danny.
politically at a time like this. but president obama has the risk of handling this the right way and mitt romney takes the risk of looking like that's politicizing anything that goes wrong. >> i think it's important that mitt romney sort of stay in the spotlight because he can't afford for people to forget about him for three days. >> well, you know, he's actually in a real dangerous situation because the more he's in the spotlight regarding this hurricane, the more his appearance during the debate in which he said things like fema having money for fema is immoral and how he wants to privatize relief funds. he doesn't really want that conversation to underbelly or underscore what's going on right now because as people begin to see how important the government is in terms of handling these situations, they're going to be able to propose that to what romney wants to do, take all that money out of fema and put it into the hands of private citizens so people make a profit over whether or not citizens have been put out of their homes can find shelter. he doesn't want that circling around him a
up to its potential and then some. >> scary news. >>> president obama flew to orlando this morning. he landed just a short time ago and bill plante is at the white house and bill i imagine the president is meeting with his top team. >> reporter: that's right. the president is motorcading back here, he's due about now and what he's going into the meeting with federal emergency management officials. he will talk about what is needed. he left for a campaign event in florida. but early this morning the white house cancelled that. they also cancelled a campaign stop scheduled for wisconsin. jay carney said that the speed of the storm made it essential for them to return earlier so the president can stay here to closely monitor the impact and in response to the hurricane. carnie says the president needed to be here to make sure that needed federal resources are in place to support state and local recovery efforts. but of course, look this is also about being presidential at this point. being in charge and not being on the campaign trail where he could be accused of n
they think a government should respond to a disaster. we know what president obama's stance is because we have been watching him act on it right now in realtime in this crisis he has faced as president. his opponent governor romney proposed a very different way. he's argued that he essentially doesn't want a federal government role in disaster response. he made these remarks on the subject at a debate last year saying not only should we get rid of a federal disaster response, but maybe it should even just be taken over by private business. >> every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction and if you can go even further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. instead of thinking in the federal budget what we should cut, we should ask ourselves the opposite question, what should we keep? we should take all of what we're doing at the federal level and say what are the things we're doing that we don't have to do and those things we got to stop doing because we're borrowing $1.6 trilli
served on the homeland security department in the obama administration. first of all, you have a column that is on right now, cnn.com. it essentially praises the president for his response to the storm. you say it's the most significant of his presidency. let's listen to a quick clip of his comments. >> i think the public needs to prepare for the fact that this is going to take a long time for us to clean up. the good news is we will clean up, and we will get through this. >> so there are two things he points out. taking care of yourself and getting through this. really talking about the role of government, the heart of the role of government here, and the stark contrast between candidates. explain why you think this is so significant at this time. >> well, i think there's an important aspect to president obama's speech that gets lost in sort of the part sfwlan aspects of this, which is really about self-reliance and about the role of the government in promoting self-reliance amongst the citizenry, and so what you heard not just from obama -- this is why it's not necessarily part sxwlan
